Jang Ja-yeon Prosecutors Recommend Reinvestigation into Late Jang Ja-yeon Case

The prosecution committee recommended reinvestigating the late Jang Ja-yeon's case.


The Ministry of Justice Prosecution Committee held the 10th meeting on the 2nd and five preliminary survey subjects were selected for the first preliminary investigation cases.

Included in the five are the late Jang Ja-yeon case, the murder of the Chief Police of Choonchun (1972), the duo murder in Eom Goong-dong (1991), KBS Jung Yeon-joo case (2008) and the Yongsan incident (2009).

Jang Ja-yeon killed herself because she was unable to withstand the pressure of having to provide 'services' to key members of the media and entertainment industries.

Jang Ja-yeon's management head and managers were sued for abuse and defamation, but others who were related to the case were found not guilty and the prosecution received criticism for an improper investigation.

On the other hand, the National People's Petition, requesting the truth of the 'Jang Ja-yeon case' got more than 200,000 people's consent.
